French Orienteering Federation (FFCO) is very glad to welcome the best mountain bike orieenteers in the world in Orléans area and in the Loire valley. Loire Valley is a very attractive place for sightseeing. The Loire Châteaux are dotted throughout the Loire valley, and these jewels of the Renaissance contribute to the fame of the Val de Loire, listed as World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
We hope you enjoy your stay in France, and wish you a very good competition.
Michel EDIAR - President of the French Orienteering Federation (FFCO)
Centre Val de Loire region and the Loiret district are famous for its fairy-like castles, small villages of charm, beautiful historical cities, its sumptuous gardens and its edges of the Loire. The Loire Valley is the largest World Heritage Site by Unesco in France.
Orléans forest is the largest forest area of France. It is the ideal place to organize very large competitions. Thanks to the city of Orléans and the different municipalities of the Orléans agglomeration, all COPS91 and ASCO Orléans volunteers and those of other clubs who have joined us in this adventure are ready to meet the challenge of organizing these MTBO World Master Championships, MTBO European Championships and MTBO O'France. Both clubs have established the last couple of years a strong alliance and are working to welcome you and to help you to discover the still secret paths of superb Orléans forests. All is joined together so that your participation remains an unforgettable memory in the competition but also in tourism.
